uncertainty about the so-called fiscal cliff, tax hikes and spending cuts set to take effect next year. if lawmakers don't reach a deal to avoid it, consumers could see higher taxes eating into their paychecks. even online sales suffered. compared to past years of double-digit growth, this year, online holiday sales rose only about 8%, compared to nearly 16% last year. overall, holiday spending accounts for up to 30% of retailers' annual sales, so the disappointing season is a concern for an economy struggling to recover. >> consumers need to have more confidence. consumers need to feel that their jobs are secure. it's not an ideal situation. it's more of a conservative, cautious time. and companies are managing carefully, consumers are spending carefully. >> reporter: retailers are now hoping to lure consumers with deep discounts of 75% to 80% off in some cases as they try to salvage profits from this lackluster holiday shopping season. jim. >> axelrod: so, elaine, this is the first set of holiday shopping numbers that we've seen. any chance that they'll be revised as we get more data

metaphors here so bear with us. as we wait to go over the fiscal cliff, we've been reminded of the brief moment right before the titanic went into the deep. there is certain calm, even though all hell is breaking loose. and just like the titanic going down, this fiscal cliff tragedy was avoidable. last year the president said several times that we don't need any tax rate increases, even, going so far in his 2011 budget to recommend lowering all tax rates in get rid of deductions. now he is willing to send us into thent dids of recession because he won't give up on tax rate increases. many would fault the republicans. no matter who is to blame, it is the stubbornness of politicians trying to get ahead by risking our jobs and our lives is what is wrong with the way this country is run. it has got to stop. but it appears it won't stop until they have sent us over the cliff and into the deep. for more, we turn to a man who has been warning us all about the folly of this for some time, former presidential candidate and chairman of forbes media, steve forbes. steve, by the way any doubt if we do over a cliff, we'll go into recession? >> i think the economy is going to be in a slowdown any way. already business decisions have been put off, david bec

be a package to deal with averting the fiscal cliff. we can infer from that with what the president said before he went to the family vacation in hawaii that he wanted something that would be scaled down, not a massive grand bargain that would protect the current tax rate for people who earned less than $250,000 a year or perhaps a different figure if they reached that. but trying to protect the middle class. so officials here haven't seen it yet, but this is kind of today's volley in what has been this ongoing battle. house speaker john boehner has been saying the president must act and it appears the president is prepared to do that with another offer. and senate democrats would presumably be right on board with that. hopefully we will get details sometime this afternoon. then we'll see where we are. there isn't much time left. as you know, there are many people who have sorted of scaled back the breathless approach to what is a fiscal cliff and are a little bit more low key about it now. obviously, there are deadlines. but if it goes into january, there is not the alarm bell kind of issue that we've seen with other scale mates unless, of course, the markets were to act on the outside. b
